February 6, 2015 in Maseg, Maseg Typhoon, Works by Jay Loyola


Positively Filipino Magazine has featured Maség: Typhoon in their latest roundup of stories

Written by Lisa Suguitan Melnick, the review captures the artistic partnership of Master Pilipino Artists – choreographer Jay Loyola, composer Florante Aguilar and creative director, Alleluia Panis.

Melnick explores the deeper themes of Maség and uncovers the core of the production, here’s a sneak peek of the story:

“Maség investigates stories of immigration, subjugation and finally, reconciliation. This theme parallels major elements of Panis’ definition of her career’s work: decolonization through the arts, indigenous spirituality, self-representation, authenticity and striving for excellence.”

Kularts has your May calendar filled with non-stop activities but we need a little help.

Right now we have a working title: “2015 Pinoy Arts Fest” but we’re looking for a name with a little more flair!

That’s where you come in!

We want to ask you, the Pilipino families who have grown up in & around the SOMA area

and understand its significance to our Pilipino history.

Help us come up with a name that celebrates that history

and shows everyone that we are here and we are thriving!

To help you brainstorm here’s a list of our 2015 Pinoy Arts Fest events:


May 1 – The Kodakan kick-off event at the I-Hotel

May 4 – 9 – Bindlestiff Production

May 16 – The premiere of “She Who Can See” by Alleluia Panis + Dance Night!

May 23 – Maség at Yerba Buena Gardens

May 23, 30 – Special tour led by tour guide extraordinaire and outspoken cultural activist Carlos Celdran

& May 30 – SOMA Pilipina Arts Fair at Victoria Manalo Draves Park
